'TOP OF THE COPS'

Pressbox (Press Release) -
TV's Popstars finalist Hayley Evetts and a group of singing detectives, who are being backed by music industry giants Revolver Music, have announced plans to preview their new charity single on the roof-top of Police Headquarters in Birmingham.
The boys in blue - Sgt Simon Cook, Special Constable Tim Bushell, Det Con Doug Hurren and information assistant Darren Yates from West Midlands Police - will provide the backing vocals for Birmingham-based Hayley, aged 24.
The group, who are being sponsored by the force Recruiting Department, will be recording a special charity version of “Bobby's Girl” at the Fat Man Studios Complex in Sutton Coldfield later this month.
And the ‘copstars’ will also be Top of the Cops with the ultimate venue to stage a press conference to preview their new single - the roof of Police headquarters in Birmingham’s city Centre on Monday 9 April – a stunt famously pioneered by the Beatles in January 1969 as their final live performance on the roof of Apple Studios in London.
Organiser Darren Yates said: "We’ve invited ‘Nasty Nigel’ and Virgin boss, Richard Branson to the special roof-top performance, but we’ll just have to wait and see if they will attend”.
The group will be topping the bill in a charity show, hosted by BRMB radio’s breakfast presenter, Les Ross MBE, when they’ll perform a live version of the sixties hit single.
Profits from the charity show and single will be donated to the John Taylor Hospice in Erdington, Birmingham.
